The Greetery: BotaniCuts Succulents and Terrarium Dies



Hi there! I am super excited to be sharing some cards with you today that I created with some brand new stamps and dies from the sweet and oh so talented Betsy Veldman! She has opened up her own store now called The Greetery, and this is her first release. I am SO excited for her and for us, because her designs are seriously some of my favorites! Her creativity and talent knows no bounds! 

Today we are showcasing several of her new products, BotaniCuts Succulents dies, Terrarium dies, Sentiment Suite: Thinking of You + Basics dies. Be sure and check out all of her beautiful samples and more information on The Greetery Blog!

 And connect on social media: @the_greetery on Instagram, and The Greetery on Facebook. 

All of the new products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on Friday, April 26th, 10AM ET at The Greetery.


For my first card, I used Distress inks in Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber to create my background. I blended several different colors of distress ink onto Bristol board panels, spritzed thesis with water and let them dry. I then used those to cut the beautiful succulents from. 



There are four dies for each succulent and it comes in two different sizes. They are super fun to color and layer for so many fun and unique looks! I cut the Terrarium die out of kraft card stock and added a little Baker's twine hanger at the top with a sentiment from the Sentiment Suite: Thinking of You stamp set.



My second card was created much like the first one, just using different colors of distress inks to create a completely different look. I used a piece of Baker's twine to create a hanger at the top and added the sentients across the top.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing what Betsy has coming so far! Don't forget to check The Greetery Blog for more sneak peeks from Betsy! 

I am just one of the guest joining The Greetery today! Be sure and check out what the other talented designers have created!
